I am an engineering student doing a coop at a Company which does not have any floating Simulink licenses. I was wondering if I was allowed to use my education license at work for work activities. I am still enrolled as a student so my license still remains active.
Thanks.

I would think so since your coop is part of your learning experience as a student. But you can call the sales line for an authoritative answer. But how will your employer use your work after you've left? Maybe they want to buy licenses so that all your work is not lost and someone can carry on with it.

I would guess the answer is technically no. But it is arguable either way as long as you remain a student, IF when you are on co-op, you are using the tool as a learning experience.
From the other perspective, when you are on co-op, you are not really a student. And you are being paid to do that job. If your job there requires this tool, then your employer should be the one to provide the tools for your job. And I would argue this is the technically and legally correct answer. But it is probably a little bit of a gray area.
You can contact sales to get a more affirmative answer.

At some universities, such as the University of Cincinnati which pioneered the coop model of alternating coops and classroom instruction, when you are on your coop assignment you actually still are a student at the university. The university helps the students get the coops and the student actually still has to pay tuition during the months they're cooping.
I think you could even argue that all students are still enrolled over the the summer and are still students if they plan on continuing when the next semester or quarter starts.

I WAS (at one time) a co-op student. So, yes I know about co-op students. Not there. And surely different schools have different policies.
But my point is, while you are technically a student, you are also being paid to do a job, by a company, where one of the requirements appears to be that toolbox.
Suppose, while a student, you decided to form a business on the side, writing MATLAB code. Could you then sell that code for a profit? Surely that is outside the boundaries posed by the student license. But this is no different. If you are being paid to use MATLAB, then a student license is arguably not appropriate, and your employer should provide the tools needed to do your job.
Yes, it is a little bit of a gray area.
